Silverwood Park is a favorite of the FFTC Staff. The coffee shop is a great place to have adult conversations with kids in tow. There are games and coloring materials available for the kids and art on display everywhere. The atmosphere is relaxing. Silverwood strives to be a zero-waste park, so you can be confident that your coffee cups and utensils are all compostable.

  • The Island Shelter is available May through October from 10:00 a.m. to sunset. An all-day rental is $175.00. The shelter includes six picnic tables for seating up to 50, a portable grill, use of the fire pit, and one firewood. Additional firewood can be purchased from Silverwood.
